Somerville Speakup Line:Padlocked Schoolyard Gates During Snow Emergency

Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,

When it comes to parking in snow emergencies we have no one to blame but ours selves. The reason we had odd numbered side parking was a survey years ago showed there was more on street parking with odd side. Yes the even side had more snow to move but our cars and odd side cars had more space.

It was give and take. So now because of the complaints, and the board of alderman having no back bone, and the gates at schools being closed off during snow emergencies we now have less than before to park.

So my prediction is, more hydrants, driveways, parked cars on wrong side, and other snow emergency violations will happen wHich means more parking tickets and towing. Which means the city will screw us like we screw ourselves.

GOOD LUCK!!!

  1. This means more revenue for the city. As they take more parking away in the city as it is and add more cars this is a real money maker. Best bet is to just drive the car taking turns and keep going until the snow emergency is lifted. and expect no help from our employees we elected.
